Helping a friend here. I only know html and a little css.
My friend Eliot had a website created and it went live in October no problem, but about a week ago it vanished and he gets an error (please IM me for the domain). So he called me to see if I can fix it. It took forever to get the correct login info but I finally downloaded the files.
Part of the problem is that all the pages have *.php extensions. Yes, I know it's valid, but godaddy says that only htm and html extensions can be used on at least the index/welcome page. This one has welcome.php. I googled godaddy and php and they talk about the php5 extension, but not php.
When I code, I can check the pages by clicking on the html file and it opens in my browser. Not so these.
How do I view this website locally?
Any ideas on the potential problem?
